Seduced by Art exhibition ending soon

2nd January 2013

The National Gallery's first major exhibition of photography will end in just a few weeks.

Visitors staying at central London hotels have until January 20th to visit the gallery's unique show that examines the link between traditional paintings and the development of the art of photography.

Seduced by Art features around 90 photographs that have been loaned from a number of key collections such as the Wilson Centre for Photography, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the National Media Museum in Bradford and Fundacio La Caixa in Spain, as well as from many individual artists.

The images will be displayed alongside paintings from the National Gallery's own collection.

A review in the Guardian by Laura Cumming explained: "Seduced By Art is an enthralling show, beautifully selected to express the numerous ways in which painting has inspired or affected the evolution of photography.

"It has work by contemporary art photographers such as Nan Goldin and Thomas Struth, but most of the pictures are 19th century, and not the least of its pleasures is the intermingling of paintings."

Admission to the show costs £12 per adult and the central London gallery is open every day, with a special late night opening until 9pm on Fridays.

Next month will see the gallery open a new show that looks at the work of Frederic Edwin Church. Through American Eyes: Frederic Church and the Landscape Oil Sketch will include 25 paintings by the famous US artist and will be open to the public from February 6th until April 28th. Entrance to the show is free of charge.
